It was a great winter steelhead season throughout the central coast. Good fishing persists in some drainages that are still open, though the run is past its peak most everywhere, and many of the coastal systems are closed for the year.
2013 was an exceptional year. We had very light precipitation, no real blow-outs since December, and particularly of late, unseasonably pleasant weather. If these trends persist, we very well may have a drought on our hands this summer, but has been nice to worry about preventing sunburns rather than maintaining contact with fingers and toes while winter steelhead fishing.
I am already looking forward to next season! Here are a few pictures from recent trips.
